Sophia Coppola’s spellbinding remake of “The Beguiled” opens in 1864 Virginia. Amy (an excellent Oona Laurence) finds Yankee Corporal John McBurney (Colin Farrell) wounded beside a tree. She takes him back to the Seminary for Young Ladies, run by Martha Farnsworth (Nicole Kidman). It is there where the pinched schoolmarm Edwina Dabney (Kirsten Dunst) teaches five young girls, including the coquettish teen Alicia (Elle Fanning).

Broadway Philadelphia is bringing Tony Award-winning musical “Fun Home” to town next week at Forrest Theatre.

Based on the best-selling and critically lauded graphic memoir by cartoonist Alison Bechdel (“Dykes to Watch Out For”), “Fun Home” is centered on three different stages of the author’s life. The protagonist relives and tries to unravel the layers of her strained relationship with her late father, who was emotionally distant, sometimes abusive and secretly closeted.
